Yesterday was so exciting. I was joined by lots of girls to launch Alice-Miranda In Paris in the space above Shearer’s Bookshop at Leichhardt. It was fantastic to see so many of you there and looking gorgeous too. We started off with a quiz to see who knew the most about the books. In the end it was a three way tie and my best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey said that she thought everyone was going to win for a while. We had yummy food; pain au chocolat; macaroons, baguettes with ham and cheese, croissants, cream puffs, tarts and chocolate eclairs. There was a runway parade with girls stepping out in three categories; Alice-Miranda lookalikes, French Chic and other characters from the stories. It was very sweet that there was only one girl dressed as another character and that was Millie. She looked just like her too. Jacqueline’s publisher, Chris Kunz then launched the book and we met Anne Yi, the amazing illustrator who draws all the pictures for the stories and for Clementine Rose too. She is so clever and the sweetest person.
I had a great day and now I’m getting very excited about going to meet lots of friends in Melbourne next week. You can check on Jacqueline Harvey’s calendar to see if I’m coming to a library or bookshop near you.
Here are some more photos from the launch. Hope you enjoy them.
Lots of love and au revoir,
